Tobe Nwigwe represents the original subset of hip-hip, the story-telling , bar-laden subset that’s drenched in substance and personal anecdotes.
For his latest release “Fresh Air” he effortlessly flows over minimal production as he laces the record in contemporary issues, grit and poetic tendencies.
He raps, “I don’t spit bars, I spit Guantanamo Bay camps / OUU / A whole prison designed to confine the mind of the sickest living / I climb towards the divine shrine where it is written, that those in line with the design of the true and living inherit the earth…”
He lyrical details vivid realities, modern black plights and a profound consciousness that oozes through every metaphor. From COVID-19 to police brutality, 2020 reeks with negative fumes and dated mentalities – we’re all in need of some fresh air.
Take a listen above.
